Since September 2021, the Department of Cannabis Regulation (DCR) has been working with the City Council to amend Los Angeles Municipal Code Section 104.00 et seq. (Cannabis Procedures Ordinance). The recently adopted ordinance and Rules and Regulations provides application process timelines, revises definitions, creates a refiling process for Applicants, and clarifies the process for Phase 3 Retail Round 2.
In accordance with Council instruction, the Office of the City Attorney transmitted the draft ordinance on March 15, 2022 which reflects these amendments. In addition, DCR has also updated the Rules and Regulations to support and provide further clarity to the licensing processes and operational requirements. The ordinance and updated Rules and Regulations were approved by the City Council on April 5, 2022.
To help ensure understanding of these changes DCR is hosting a live webinar TODAY April 14th from 2-3:30pm that will cover these amendments and how they will impact current and future Applicants and Licensees.
